Cats and dogs are unique and special creatures in many ways but when it comes to their development they have a lot of similarities with each other, and even with their owners!
Pets with educated owners often live longer and have a better quality of life, so read the tips below for each life stage and see what you learn.
Just like human babies, kittens and puppies need a lot of sleep to aid their muscle and brain development; a newborn kitten typically spends 90% of their day sleeping – almost 22 hours!
In their adult years, feeding your cat or dog a balanced diet and engaging them in regular exercise or interactive play can help prevent common health problems like obesity.
Dogs typically require around 20 minutes to 2 hours of exercise a day depending on their breed, consult your vet for more advice if you’re worried your dog may be overweight.
During later life, cats, dogs and humans can face similar health issues including diabetes, arthritis and kidney problems. MedicAnimal has created a specially tailored range of senior dog food and senior cat food to help stave off these common issues.
